Owen Hargreaves Targets MLS Move

Injury prone midfielder linked with North American return.

EX MANCHESTER City and Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves has entertained the idea of a move to the MLS.

The Canadian-born player has been plagued with injuries throughout his career.

Hargreaves favours a move to the USA so he can be closer to his family.

He said: “Yes. They want me to go and play over there.

“It is a big move, you have to decide do you want to make the move, a big change. There are so many things I could do there and it would be nice to spend time in Canada.

“I am fit but having focused so much on football since I was 15, I am just taking a step back.”

Clearly any MLS side interested in the former Champions League winner will have to think long and hard about the potential cost of such a deal to any side willing to take a very real risk of employing a player who would run the risk of spending huge amounts of time on the treatment table.

When fully fit Hargreaves is still a player who can make an impact at the highest level so could well be a huge success in the MLS and it may be the right move at the right time for the 31 year old.

The former Bayern Munich, Man United and Man City midfielder last started a top tier game in November 2010.
